Detroit Federation of Teachers Calls for Sick-Out

43 Detroit Public Schools are closed Monday because of teacher sick-outs.

The Detroit Federation of Teachers urged its members to call in sick just one day after the district’s transition manager said Detroit Public Schools will have no money to pay teachers this summer without more funding from the state.

Right now, state lawmakers are considering a $720 million restructuring plan.

In March, Governor Rick Snyder signed emergency funding into law that will keep the district operating through the end of the school year.
